I am having an issue with Photoshop CS4 where every time I view an image at 66.7% magnification, the program freezes up. Most often the problem resolves itself after a moment, but I do have to occasionally force the program to close and restart. The issue is not limited to working at that magnification. Frequently zooming through 66.7% (in or out) will cause a freeze up.

Have you tried disabling GPU drawing?

Have you tried updating your video card driver?

OK, so we know it's a problem with your video card driver. Please check for driver updates.
